The age of the celebrity supergroup charity single truly began in October , when Boomtown Rats singer Bob Geldof watched in horror as footage of the worsening Ethiopian famine played across his television screen as part of a BBC News documentary. He was still haunted by the images a week later when a chance encounter reunited him with an old friend, Ultravox frontman Midge Ure, who was just as troubled by what he had seen on the report. The men decided to channel their outrage into a new charity single. The plan grew significantly larger in scope after Geldof made some calls to the British pop community. He said he was mad for it as well and to wait 10 days till they got back in the country… suddenly it hit me. Now they needed a song. The singers had not heard the track in advance, and learned their lines on the spot with the help of a demo tape Ure prepared.

Every fucking Christmas. Geldof was, of course, correct. It's an oblivious mess of smug, paternalistic bullshit.

There are plenty of songs that signal the arrival of the Christmas for me. The benefit single by the British supergroup Band Aid is my favorite Christmas song. But that is because the line is mostly misunderstood in the general context of the song. Which is something the punk-influenced Bono would have done. In , when a 20th-anniversary version of the song was recorded, Bono stood by the line and sang it again. It would be ignorant to think otherwise.

Only Fucked Up Could Save "Do They Know It's Christmas?"

Sign in. - It was first recorded in a single day on 25 November by Band Aid , a supergroup put together by Geldof and Ure and consisting mainly of the biggest British and Irish musical acts at the time.
